"...for they shall be called the children of God." - Yeshua ben Yusef

This is a church for pacifists for whom the Quakers might be too structureless and the Mennonites too strict. It could exist in one of two forms (or maybe both: a specifically Christian denomination ("Church of Christ the Peacemaker") or a more ecumenical/universalist form. Readings at services would in either case be drawn from a wide range of peacemakers throughout history - Christ, Gandhi, King, Peace Pilgrim, etc. etc. Individual churches would also offer training to the public in conflict resolution, as well as mediation services and shelter for victims of domestic violence.

       // This is a church for pacifists //   

       Drawing strictly from the texts that they all seem to espouse so vociferously, shouldn't they all be pacifists? [+]
